Abstract: front page image
(EN)Coating compositions are provided that eject droplets of condensed fluid from a surface. The coatings include a nanostructured coating layer and in some embodiments, also include a hydrophobic layer deposited thereon. The coating materials eject droplets from the surface in the presence of non-condensing gases such as air and may be deployed under conditions of supersaturation of the condensed fluid to be ejected. A heat exchanger design utilizing the coating is described herein.
(FR)L'invention concerne des compositions de revêtement qui éjectent des gouttelettes de fluide condensé à partir d'une surface. Les revêtements comprennent une couche de revêtement nanostructurée et, dans certains modes de réalisation, une couche hydrophobe est également déposée sur lesdits revêtements. Les matériaux de revêtement éjectent des gouttelettes à partir de la surface en présence de gaz sans condensation tels que l'air et peuvent être déployés dans des conditions de sursaturation du fluide condensé à éjecter. L'invention concerne également un modèle d'échangeur de chaleur utilisant le revêtement.
